Wine Details

Opens with a complex, effusive nose of honeysuckle blossom, orchard fruits, kiwi, guava, and papaya, all supported by a chalky minerality. It’s focused, yet expansive on the palate with a lovely balance between ripe fruit and minerality that is truly refreshing.

Cam Confidential

Lot 556 is sourced from a single vineyard in the southernmost reaches of Carneros where the temperature rarely gets above 80 degrees (with a warmed-up shoulder I could probably hit the Bay with a rock). This 100% musqué clone is sold for $25 under the source winery’s label – yours today for about half the price.

Good crisp and refreshing. Nice light citrus nose and taste with just a tad of earth. This Ca. SB is just right. Will get more.

This is one of the best Sauvignon Blancs I have tasted. Just the perfect balance of crispness and fruity. I wish I would have ordered more but ahhh summer is coming to a close.

I can easily work my way through a bottle of this stuff on a beautiful summer evening. I ordered a mixed case and this was my favorite of the whites, so I ordered a case. Crisp, refreshing, well balanced fruit and minerals with a hint of Turkish delight. I'm a fan of Sauvignon blanc, and for me this rivals ones from Marlborough in NZ. Delicious!

Good but just a bit of a mineral taste

Really liked this Sauvignon Blanc. Crisp and refreshing, mild citrus and a touch of acidity.
Great summer seafood wine.

I was hoping for something a bit more crisp.

Some folks are into citrus bombs in their SB but I'm not and was hoping for less citrus than described.

...good for what it is, just not for me.
